Reply once if you've tried AROS

In keeping with the AmigaONE and MOS threads, AROS was feeling a little left out...

Tried a self-booting and had problems getting it to run (that was a few months ago, didn't work off of CD, worked off of a floppy.)  

A month or so later I picked up a linux-x86 native version and played around with it (it locked up on me after a few minutes).

I'll probably look into it a bit more in the future.

I tried it a few moths ago from bootable CD. It was fun, but very limited in what I could do. Can't wait till it has more functionallity.

I tried it from a bootable CD a few months ago but I didn't like my video hardware.  I have a different machine now (old one fried by lightning) so I'll give another go once I find the disc...

Tried it, very interesting but not so useful at the moment. I'll definitly be checking back in the future.
Keep up the great work.

I downloaded, burned, and booted a disc about 3 weeks ago. Ran like a dream. Later that week I donated some $$$ to help with development. (I am not a coder) I loved it and I can't wait until I can have it on my machine all the time.

I tried it once, but wasn't too impressed.

Then I reaslised it would be better to try a recent version, and liked it so much I signed up to the dev list :-D

Tried it, loved it. Very anxious to see a TCP stack and Gailhead's  emulator sometime in the future.

Latetly the build hasent been 100% working so it might be a good idea to wait a few more nights before trying another build again :-) then again it might be fixed with the next nigthly! also for the future ill try to have online a build that is considered "stable" (stable is a big word it dosent mean AROS Is 100% stable but that ive tried the iso on several of my pcs/other peoples pcs and that it works at least here).

    I've tried it. It works on my Crateway at work and doesn't work on my machine at home. It seems to be a video and USB mouse problem.
    I like it and can't wait until I can dump Windows and dual boot AROS and Linux.
